In the UK most meat baby foods have onion powder in them. Is this ok for the rhacs? I worry as I know onions are bad for dogs!

:This is the mix I make for my cresties...other people do it differently you'll have to experament and see what works for you.

:4 large jars peach or apricot babyfood
:1 small jar sweet potato baby food
:1 large jar hiawian (sp?) delight baby food
:1 small jar either beef, chicken, pork, veal or lamb baby food thined in enough water to make it runny
:1 spoonful of calcium powder
:1 spoonful of vitamin powder
:mix and freeze in small icecube tray (one ice cube is enough for 3 cresties at one feeding)

:you can also add mashed insects and different types of fruit baby food, I've also heard of people adding honey and yogurt.

:As to the difference in males and females my male is smaller then my females (42 grams as compaired to my 52 gram females) I may just have big females or may have a little male, I wouldn't worry about Abby's growth too much unless she's not eating or not gaining at a steady rate (say one half to one gram a week or so) or unless she starts to loose weight.

:Hope this helps!
